So I went to kick my bike over the other day and on the second kick I felt a pop and it just went loose. It returns just as normal and the bike bum starts and runs

It returns....ok so not a broken spring, maybe a stripped ratchet gear. You need to take the outer gearbox cover off and inspect.

I live by the work shop manual, it just doesn’t want to turn the bike over and only grabs if I push it super slow, thinking it might be a key way or a clutch issue, I’m tearing it apart tomorrow to take a look

Could just be oil on the plates. Sometimes if the bike is laid up for awhile, the oil does allow clutch slip. A ride around if you can start it often clears it and no work needed. It could be the kickstart ratchet or the clutch needing attention. I would try the easy way first and ride it around a few miles.
